Nose: initial perfume like, then quickly it became fruity with a slight tinge of maltiness behind


With water - ABV seems stronger, fruitiness


Palate: pepperish, fruity, some floral perfume taste, and the familiar hoppy beer notes. Slight bitterness towards the end


With water - pepper is lighter, prickly effect on the palate, sweetness prevails more with variety of fruits, with water this is also a nice dram, hoppy wasn't as prominent


Finish: medium finish with a slight bitter lingering, slight warmness at the back of the throat


Score : 88, with water 89, WB140125
